Poetry

…..But in the case of a symbolic work we should remember the dictum of Gerhard Hauptmann: “Poetry evokes out of words the resonance of the primordial word.” The question we should ask, therefore, is: “What primordial image lies behind the imagery of art?” ….. Carl Jung (The Spirit in Man, Art and Literature,
published by Princeton University Press, Fourth Edition, 1978)
